Could Carlo Ancelotti replace Arsene Wenger?

Arsene Wenger refused to explain his decision to drop Alexis Sanchez to the bench for Wednesday's 0-0 draw at Chelsea, but insisted he still hopes the Chile international will stay at Arsenal for the rest of the season.

When this was all happening, there was a lot of talk of Ancelotti wanting to manage a club in London, a city he fell in love with during his time at Stamford Bridge, and that's why Arsenal seemed perfect for him.

Wenger rued his side's injury woes in midfield as Wilshere joined playmakers Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) and Mesut Ozil (knee) along with long-term absentee Santi Cazorla on the sidelines.

He suffered an ankle sprain when making a block, and the setback made him a doubt for Sunday's Premier League match with Bournemouth, where he spent last season on loan.

"You have to accept as well when you play so many games, and Sanchez plays every game, that sometimes a breather in the middle of the season helps them a little bit".

It was called on again with two minutes remaining and once more confirmed the referee's decision not to award a penalty, this time after Danny Welbeck got a faint touch on the ball when bringing down Fabregas. "He can play and pass, but this could be about him fully believing in himself".

Wenger was alongside his trusted lieutenant Jens Lehmann, and just behind Express Sport's Tony Banks, for the goalless draw. "We are not on that case at the moment". But of course for Sunday [at Bournemouth], I think he will be short.

The Arsenal boss was banned from the touchline for three matches after comments on Mike Dean's performances after the game with West Brom at the end of last year.

Antonio Conte believes Ross Barkley could be ready to make his Chelsea debut next week in the FA Cup third-round replay against Norwich City.

The idea, says the Standard, "is to reduce the dependency on the manager, thereby providing an additional degree of stability". Quizzed on whether selecting Iwobi sent a mixed message on team discipline, Wenger said: "There's one thing to punish someone individually and a second thing to punish everybody".
